    Autel will pay its customers to take the Part 107 test - The Drone Girl

    Autel Robotics announced today that it will cover the cost for its customers who take (and pass) the Federal Aviation Administration’s Remote Pilot Knowledge Test.

    Autel drone operators who submit a proof of a qualified X-Star series drone purchase and proof of a passing result on the FAA’s knowledge test will be entitled to a rebate for the test, which otherwise costs $150.

    It’s a wonderful premise to set as it looks like Autel wants to make sure its customers are educated and safe. But it’s also a wise move for the drone company in an effort to remove itself from any bad press from rogue drones and ensure its drones aren’t the ones crashing. The drone that famously crashed into the White House lawn was a DJI Phantom — Autel’s primary competitor.
